Matching color: Canon 5DMk11 with Canon XHAi

Seeking advise for matching color between these two rigs: Canon 5DMk2 and XHAI

Both cams set to 30p

I have the 5DMk2 set flat as per Philip Bloom's suggestions:
Sharpness all the way down
Contrast all the way down
Saturation almost all the way down
Highlight Tone priority

There are many presets available for the XHAI. I tend to think that the Panalok setting comes the closest to my settings on the 5D, but would be very interested in contacting/discussing this subject with anyone who has tried to match up these two cams as close as possible.

Hey Tim,
I find that my preset matches pretty close. You have to punch the A1 footage in the nose to get it close, but it works. Here's one that I did.

Interesting....Is the first woman from the 5D and the women near the window with a slightly reddish tinge, the XHA1? Also one shot looks slightly softer than the other...

I am trying the True Color preset after reading many of the posts here.

:) Interesting that one doesn't GLARE out from the other isn't it? I am using Truecolor with blacks pressed and sharpness up a bit. The wide shots are all 5D with the 50 1.4 and the tight shots are all A1.

Hi:
Would you like to send me your xha1 true color preset....I tried truecolor but felt it had too much blue....I am now trying eosphoto. This seems to produce truer greens...grass for example.
